MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 5, 2020 /CNW/ - Schneider Electric, a leader in energy management and automation, today launched its Wiser Approved Installer Program for electricians. The multi-part training program prepares electricians to sell and install Wiser Energy solutions—Schneider Electric's smart home technology that provides users with a comprehensive, real-time view of their home's energy usage. The installer program strives to support electricians in developing their business and expanding their service offering, as the demand for smart home electronics continues to rise.

"Canadians are spending more time at home than ever before, so it's no surprise the way we depend on our homes has changed too," said Adrian Thomas, Vice President, Home and Distribution, Schneider Electric. "Smart home technology provides valuable insight into a home's energy usage, helping homeowners optimize on efficiencies and save on money. Our Wiser Installer Program equips electricians with the support and technological knowledge they need to install these solutions, making smart home technology more accessible to homeowners across Canada."

Electricians who enroll in the Wiser Installer Program must complete two stages to receive their installer badge. First, electricians familiarize themselves with the product by installing a Wiser Energy unit; and second, participants complete two, 30-minute training modules. Following fulfillment of the program, electricians will receive an installer badge, in addition to ongoing product presentations and updates, exclusive product promotions, monthly webinars and a program discount. Based on the number of units purchased annually, installers are also eligible to receive rewards throughout the program.

Schneider Electric's Wiser Installer Program will expand the Wiser Energy installer base and help pave the way forward for complete adoption of residential power management solutions. For more information on Wiser Energy and to register, please visit
